Iran's State Media Reveal: Actual Facts and News on Quake Not Published
A state-run media admitted that government officials and media do not inform the public about the facts and actual news on the situation of Sunday’s earthquake in Iran’s western provinces and its victims.
The state-run Jame’eh Farda (Tomorrow’s Community) media noted the secrecy of the Iranian regime in announcing the statistics and real news about the earthquake on Sunday night in the country, which killed hundreds and injured thousands, and wrote: “We hide the outrage of nature in the same way as we distort public opinion about our political failures.”

No Supervision Over Shabby Housing Project Which Caused Most Deaths in the Recent Quake
One day after Ishaq Jahangiri, the first vice president of the Iranian regime, said most victims of the recent earthquake belong to the Mehr residence, the head of the regime's engineering system organization announced that the organization had “no oversight” over the construction of the Mehr housing project.
According to the state-run Fars news agency affiliated to IRGC, the head of the organization, Hassan Gurbankhani, said: “The engineering system organization had no supervision over the construction of the Mehr housing units, and no monitoring engineer has been introduced by the organization for the housing units.”

Iranian Regime Abandons People After Devastating Earthquake
 Hundreds of people were killed by the earthquake that struck Iran and Iraq earlier this week. It was felt as far away as Turkey and Pakistan and eclipsed the deadly earthquake that hit Mexico in September.
One small village called Quik Hasan was particularly affected by the earthquake with over 50 deaths alone. The small farming village is home to just 170 households and the surviving inhabitants have had to survive outside in the cold since the earthquake struck.
Those that died have been buried in makeshift graves by their relatives.
Iran National Television (INTV) announced on Monday November 14, 2017 that all the remaining financial donations pledged to this TV Station by the Iranian people last week during the National Telethon be given to victims of the Sunday's earthquake. The INTV asked all Iranians who have pledged their donations to this station give their money and help to those who have suffered and lost their livelihood in the quake. This money would be one billion Iranian toomans or about $330,000 that should go straight to the quake stricken areas in Iran. 
The INTV conducted a 3-day fundraising telethon campaign in Farsi language on November 3rd. This was the 22nd campaign by the TV station to raise fund for it continued operation. The INTV is a non-profit and non-commercial organization that runs only through the donations received from Iranians inside and outside Iran. All its staffs are volunteers and do not receive any salary. INTV is uniquely the voice for the Iranian people.
Rouhani Blames Protesting Investors, Saying Central Bank Cannot Provide Money for Earthquake Relief
between the head of Iran’s three branches, regime President Hassan Rouhani, accompanied by parliamentary chief Ali Larijani and judiciary chief Sadeq Larijani, had the audacity to blame protesting investors who have lost their entire savings to state-run financial institutes.
“The people should be careful and place their money in banks and institutions that are well known and trusted, and doubt those entities that promise high profits,” he said on Saturday.
Rouhani, alongside Supreme Leader Ali Khamenei and other senior regime officials, is one of the main thieves of the Iranian people’s money.

Why Iran's Earthquakes Are So Devastating
Why Iran's Earthquakes Are So Devastating
Heshmat Alavi
Forbes, November 14, 2017 - In this day and age we are witnessing random earthquakes here and there across the globe. Iran lies on several tectonic plates, and the Iranian people suffer extreme conditions after each earthquake.
The reaction shown to each earthquake by the ruling regime in Iran is far different from its counterparts across the globe. Media censorship, excruciating delay in sending even minimum support and imposing a tight security atmosphere to quell any possible sign of unrest is Tehran’s response to such natural disasters.

 Iran Earthquake
With deepest sympathies to my fellow compatriots stricken by earthquake in western Iran, particularly in Qasr-e Shirin and Sar-e Pol-e Zahab, I would like to extend my heartfelt condolences to the bereaved families who have lost their loved ones.
In these difficult moments when all the people of Iran are anxious and concerned about the lives of those stuck under the rubbles, what adds to the public’s distress is the clerical regime’s criminal record in such natural disasters of dragging its feet and dodging its responsibility in saving the lives of people.
This is all the more reason for our compatriots, particularly the courageous youths, who reside in western Iran to rush to the aid of people in the quake-stricken areas and help those trapped under the wreckage.
Just as opposed to the practices of the clerical regime, now is the time to show solidarity. Assisting and saving the victims of the earthquake is a sacred national duty.
Our prayers are for the rescue of the quake victims and the recovery of those injured and wounded.
Expressing Condolences & Sympathy With the Quake-Stricken People, Encouraging Youth to Help the Injured

President-elect of the Iranian Resistance, expressed her condolences to the families who have lost their loved ones in the last night earthquake in different areas, including Qasr-e Shirin, Islamabad, Sar-e pol Zahab, Salas Babajani and Kerend.
Reiterating the criminal background of the mullahs’ regime’s neglect and irresponsibility to save the people’s lives in such incidents, Mrs. Rajavi asked the youth, especially those in western provinces, to rescue the people who are trapped under debris, and to deliver their aids directly to the stricken people and the injured. She added that just opposite to the Velayat-e faqih regime, it is now a time of solidarity, and helping the stricken people and saving them is a sacred national duty.
